Fatah held a youth soccer tournament named after three Palestinian terrorists.

The tournament held earlier this week was named for the terrorists who killed Israeli Rabbi Meir Chai, a 45-year-old father of 7, in a drive-by shooting in the northern West Bank, Palestinian Media Watch reported.

Fatah is the political party of Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Fatah’s Nablus branch sponsored the championship, the third “Martyrs Raed Al-Sarkaji, Anan Subh, Ghassan Abu Sharakh, and Haitham Al-Naana Ramadan Football Championship” for youth born in 1996, PMW cited the Palestinian newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida as reporting the news.

A closing ceremony was held, including a moment of silence and a recitation of passages from the Koran in memory of the terrorists, the newspaper reported, according to PMW.

Earlier this summer, according to PMW, Fatah sponsored a summer camp for youth named after terrorist Dalal Mughrabi, who led a bus hijacking in 1978 that killed 37 civilians.
